In 1991, Bill Hicks *nailed it* about Iraq War in 2011

I'm amazed at how much of this routine works for both wars. It's uncanny.http://www.youtube.com/embed/u4CQ_1GWn4w?That was 20 years ago.This was about the first Iraq War. Notice how long it takes for his routine to give away the difference? Even the SCUD Missile stuff at 3:30 really is just like a vehicle born IED."A war is between two armies." 1991, 2011... This is utterly timeless.We lost a genius early. Bill Hicks was on the verge of real household name recognition wh … [Read more...]

This is why a government computer should never be left unattended.

Seriously, you must click this to embiggen. You've just gotta see what I did.Okay, well this is actually even more epic than it looks.We have a policy that keeps people from leaving their computers unlocked for various obvious reasons (and some not so obvious). Offenders can sometimes get dealt with in fun ways, usually teaching them a lesson. I've seen it all: Facebook posts about deep disturbing love for a random girly subject, letters to the rest of the command about the Army 'not … [Read more...]

Penn Jillette misses the point about Atheists and the Chaplaincy

I still love you, Penn - but I have to rebut you here.Penn released this video in May:http://www.youtube.com/embed/ozj8QRr9Fe8?Penn Jillette mentioned my activism's news coverage in the New York Times and the Rock Beyond Belief festival (which is most certainly 'back on', but was not at the time of this video.) This is a turning point in the push for respect and equality in the military for the atheist community, and he clearly appreciates this. In fact, a few months back he even … [Read more...]

The single best video ever made about foxhole atheists (possibly NSFW)

This is that rare combination of well-informed reporting and genuinely funny brash sarcasm. Raleigh-based A-News is the DIY equivalent to the Daily Show / Colbert Report for atheists.I have no idea why this show isn't already massively popular.httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhKKLhGijuQThis entire episode is dedicated to the recently reinvigorated struggle for acceptance by foxhole atheists. Is it too early to say 'the New Foxhole Atheists'? I'm proud to be one of the major players … [Read more...]

#OccupyFortBragg March 31st 2012 – bring blanket

Foxhole Atheists are on the cusp of real change. We need your help. We need you to care.We are the 20+%We've been silenced, threatened, intimidated, and treated as 'un-American' for too long. The non-religious military community is the DoD's second largest religious demographic, outnumbering the next largest group by two orders of magnitude.Across the globe, non-theists in uniform are starting to seek each other out and shed the fear of discovery. The epicenter of the changing atmosphere … [Read more...]

BlagHag plague hits close to home. PZ Myers has military backup

Today I noticed that PZ Myers courageously continued his fight against the caturday plague. PZ alerted all of us at FTB to the sinister plans of Jen McCreight who adopted a kitten over at BlagHag.Those freaking cat hairs stick to my uniforms, and I am declaring war. I bred these anti-caturday warriors myself. Sick 'em boys.Methinks it's a Courage Wolf!I was wondering what else could possibly be done to preempt the cute overload...But then it happened.My daughter, Zoe, … [Read more...]
